Well CRT may well have put paid to that for us with the following stoppage notice:
Lock 13, Newark Town Lock, River Trent
19th October 2015 at 08:00
14th December 2015 at 16:00 inclusive
Gate replanking and various brickwork repairs
We seem to have been dodging stoppages on every break we have had so far this year!
So we are now looking for a Plan B. It has been some years since we have visited York and this is the likely candidate for Plan B should the weather behave itself and river levels be in the normal range for the time of year.
